Here is a list of foods having the highest content of nonpolar sulfur-containing amino acids comprising cysteine (Cys) and methionine (Met) in g per 100 grams of food. Since two cysteine molecules are most often bound together with a disulphide bond forming cystine, the result are presented for cystine. Since you may also be interested in foods with a high amino acid content AND few calories, the list also includes the number of calories.

The information is based on the public USDA National Nutrient Database. Commercial brand products are not included in this list.
